Voting machines utilized by the Atlantic County Board of Elections were chosen because of their ease of use for all voters. Features include:
Voting instructions are prominently visible.
Even with a full ballot of 504 positions presented, voters see all offices and candidates at a glance with no scrolling.
The machine rotates forward, lowering the height of the ballot by 12 inches, allowing those in wheelchairs to vote unassisted. There are no protruding legs or appendages to interfere with easy access and movement, or to become damaged when struck. Wheelchair access is compliant with provisions of the FEC Standard for DRE equipment.
Senior citizens, who represent a major percentage of the voting population, really appreciate our static ballot. It provides complete visibility of the whole election roster, candidates and propositions, without scrolling or page turning.
With six tallying registers and over 100 electronic system verifications voting machines continuously monitor their own operations.
A blinking red light identifies each unvoted office on the ballot. When all the blinking lights are gone, all offices have been voted.
It is simply impossible to over-vote.
